Expect Justin Verlander's new digs to rev up Dodgers rumors

This much can safely be said: If Verlander is dealt this winter, the Los Angeles Dodgers make more sense than just about any other team. DETROIT -- The news that Justin Verlander has purchased a home in Beverly Hills, not all that far from Dodger Stadium, inevitably sparked a new round of speculation about whether the Detroit Tigers ace would be wearing a new uniform in 2017. This much can safely be said: If Verlander is dealt this winter, the Los Angeles Dodgers make more sense than just about any other team. Based on his real estate decisions, Verlander...

MLB trade rumors: We’re still skeptical of that Victor Martinez rumor

Could the Tigers solve their payroll crunch by dealing their veteran DH? No, probably not. The Detroit Tigers currently have competing interests in play as the Winter Meetings draw near. The club shows no sign of giving up on the AL Central in 2017, yet they are under a mandate to lower their payroll to a manageable level. The second part is easy. The Tigers could move several stars for modest returns and completely reset the payroll. However, without Ian Kinsler or Justin Verlander, it’s difficult to argue that the Tigers will be a real factor next season. Here’s an ideal solution:...

Verlander, Cabrera Mega-Trade Not In Sox Best Interest

The Trade TargetsThere's been a lot of speculation recently (mostly idle) about a mega-trade that would fetch both Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera from the Tigers. Most of these "reports" conveniently fail to list the boatload of Red Sox prospects and/or current roster players that would have to head to The Motor City in return. And of course, the point is made that Dave Dombrowski drafted Verlander and traded for Cabrera and thus has a special tingly feeling for them (not unlike the tingle Chris Matthews felt up his leg upon first hearing Barack Obama speak). Yada, yada, yada. Does...

What the baseball world is saying about Justin Verlander's 2nd place finish

Some thought the controversy over Verlanders snub was detracting from Rick Porcellos accomplishment. DETROIT -- Everyone knows how model Kate Upton felt about her fiance getting snubbed. She sent out several angry tweets Wednesday night, including one that used a vulgarity and another that seemed to mock Rick Porcello, the former Tiger who narrowly beat out Justin Verlander for the American League Cy Young Award.
